An interview with The Marlowe revolves around how director Conor McPherson had never directed a musical prior to this mission and found himself delighting in the refreshing experience. He highlights that when it comes to a straight play, the challenge lies in entertaining everyone merely through the script and performance. However, in a musical, there arise instances where someone might suggest, “Shall we have a refreshing pause for everyone's benefit?” and you'd positively accept, thinking it sounds quite fascinating.
